TMW : The Power of Poem (Poem)

Kabyar is a Burmese Poem

Poem : Tekkatho Moe War
Translator : Hla Min


Poem is animate
But [it’s life is] not just a [fleeting] morn

Poem is a weapon
But not for destroying the world

Poem is key
For liberation and independence
But not devoid of principles [and morals]

Poem has power
Hidden but efficient & effective
Like sharp-pointed spear-head
Can thrust into [the heart of] a power-maniac
Cause trembling, shivering, throbbing & anguished pain
